Jar candle holder
With my advent candles made, and £25 raised for Mind in the process, it was time to create something to hold an advent candle for 24 days. My local charity shops didn’t have anything suitable and I wanted something more attractive than an old wine bottle but equally affordable.
Here is a purple ribboned version suitable for an adventy theme, but it didn’t match the candle very well:
And here is version 2, better colours but not overly Christmassy and not permanently fixed in place in case of rearrangements.
My evaluative improvements for this project would be
- a smaller jar
- glass beads or more attractive or painted dried food inside
- sparkly bits!
I do love the simplicity of the flowers and the fully recyclable nature of the candle holder though. A success!
